Description

If one of your pupils has Asperger Syndrome (AS) you might have noticed that some of their behaviour is a bit different to other students: that they become stressed when faced with change in situations or routines. Children with AS are visual thinkers and learners, and they do not cope well with verbal instructions. That's why, in order to avoid negative feedback, they can become defiant in their behaviour.

This book offers an accessible introduction for teachers of a child diagnosed with AS. Intended as a support tool in the initial period after diagnosis, Your Special Student is varied and engaging and addresses questions or concerns that teachers might have, such as introducing an AS student to the class; integrating the AS student; dealing with tricky situations, such as bullying; and encouraging the 'gifts' of AS. Also included are poems, stories, illustrations and activities to guide teachers in helping the child and his or her peers come to terms with, and move forward from, a diagnosis of AS.
